Description & Coverage
Description:

Many of today’s e-government systems are designed to replicate conventional systems. Electronic solutions are implemented in government offices without investigating transformational aspects and, as a result, these systems are unable to provide long-term sustainability.

Cases on Adoption, Diffusion and Evaluation of Global E-Governance Systems: Impact at the Grass Roots accommodates theories, issues and methodologies for designing, implementing and operating e-government systems. The cases contained in this text cover a variety of services and applications that have been improving the governance of nations and economies. Focusing on pragmatic implementations and emphasizing e-government systems targeted to grass roots e-governance, this work assists readers in understanding basic aspects of e-government systems as well as their successful design and implementation.

  • Community knowledge records
  • E-governance concerns
  • E-government policy
